Oh my goodness, I found this amazing GIGANTIC Hugo a long while ago and have been meaning to post it here ever since:
HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE HIM?! Sorry for the yelling there, I just think this is my favorite rendition I have seen of any of my patterns.
Kristydavenport used 5 strands of leftover yarns held together on Us Size 15 needles to make this monster of a monster. You can find out all the details on her Ravelry project page. And her reason for knitting him is so sweet, too. Here's what she has to say about Huge-o:
"I made him for my Daughter Gillian who’s 5. She been having night terrors. crying as she sleeps. and I have made her smaller monsters and they have work well for scaring away bad dream monsters. But she needed a larger one to protect her as she slept. Plus mommy and Daddy need a good night slept “alone” hint, hint. LOL.
This monster is big enough to kick any bad dream/closet /under the bed monster Butts. Perfect for snuggling. I was hoping to make him bean bag size but he’s a bit smaller than a bean bag.. However I am happy with his size he does not take over her bed room.
He can be washed. he is stuffed with small pillows made form old flour sacks filled with poly fill and two retired pillows. The pillows can come out and be washed also.
She has large pink sheep a friend gave her when she was born and it’s a pain to wash him. so I learned my lesson make them wash able. The eye are 30 mm purchase from 6060."
I hope this inspires you to do some giant monster knitting. No, I mean it. Get off the computer and go check what the biggest pair of needles you own are and cast on now!
